Photos from Wednesday at GPF
By Billy Rainford
Remember yesterday when I half jokingly said I had heat stroke? Well, it turns out I was actually fighting some sort of flu bug. I’m the guy who swears up and down that he hasn’t thrown up or had the flu since…I can’t even remember. Well, now I know when the last time was.
Anyway, there are worse places to feel under the weather. It was another 80-degree day here at GPF. With the nice weather, the place was pretty busy. Also, with Daytona just a few days away now, everyone is busy honing their skills to take on the Pro day Saturday or the Ricky Carmichael Amateur SX Sunday and Monday.
Here are a few shots from Wednesday:
I was busy doing video most of the day. Look for a few edits of the Honda Canada TLD GDR team when I get a chance to sit down and do them. Here’s Colton Facciotti giving us the rundown on how his training is going. – Bigwave photo
I don’t even know who this is but he’s riding a 2-stroke and he’s got McLovin on his front plate so he gets a mention. – Bigwave photo
Tanner Stack was back on his Supermini today. He’s coming back from a knee injury but still looked smoking fast. – Bigwave photo
I had to take a shot of the Supermini rider who was pulling Stack. It’s Rosemeyer and he’s fast.
There are some potential future superstars in this group. – Bigwave photo
We got to know Matt Hammer last summer when he raced at our nationals. He’s looking fast here at GPF.
Jeremy Medaglia put in some hard motos today on his Honda Canada TLD GDR bike. – Bigwave photo
So did #278 Westen Wrozyna. He struggled with two flats today but still managed to get in his training. – Bigwave photo
Mitch Goheen had some bike issues of his own but also got in his workouts.
Fast kids on Superminis are my favourite to watch at the track. – Bigwave photo
Young Harrison took a look at doubling up the big step-up triple but I never saw him actually pull the trigger. – Bigwave photo
Ripping it up on a 2-stroke. Remember the sound of 40 125s all going at Pro speeds? Man, those were good times! – Bigwave photo
Another of Jeremy Medaglia mid-moto from Wednesday. – Bigwave photo
Mitch blasting a berm in the perfect late-afternoon sunlight. – Bigwave photo
Does it get much better than this? Just hanging out down south riding your dirt bike. Nice. See you at the races…
